Hello

I'm graduating form school with my BBA in Business this upcoming December and I was looking into the Masters of Science in Accounting programs in the area. UH-Clear Lake, UH-Main and TSU seems like that the best schools for me. I want to attend the main campus of U of H but its kind of expensive compared to the campus in Clear Lake and Texas Southern.

I have been to each school a while back but I'm not familiar with the business programs at each school. Can anyone tell me about their business programs and whats its like going to the schools?

Thanks

when you say these schools seem best for you, what do you mean? I am asking to know how best to advise.

Then Clear lake would probably come out on top since commuting doesn't seem to be an issue. my choice would be UH Main tho.

Definitely go with UH Main. It will take you a lot further than those other schools when It comes to job hunting upon graduation.

I would probably stick with the main campus of UH, with UH-Clear Lake being the second choice.

Texas Southern doesn't really have the best reputation which could affect you latter on regarding job offers.

UH business has a good reputation. They have a few nationally ranked programs. Academically - UH is definitely #1. UHCL is #2. Now if you are looking primarily for a small campus with some of the lowest crime statistics in the country, then choose UHCL.

I went to UHCL and loved it -- but I wasn't taking business so I can't comment on how their business program is - I know others who took it though and liked it.

I hate when HBCUs don't get the credit that they deserve. That just urks my nerves. You should give TSU a try too. I attend an HBCU, and it (an HBCU) is one of the best kinds of universities/colleges ever. One-on-one help, smaller class setting, more hands-on assignments, and cheaper tuition. College is what you make it, so don't think that going TSU will be doomsday because there are several kids who attend TSU and other HBCUs that will actually be ssomebody. BTW, I attend Alabama A&M University, and I'm doing quite fine, working my way up to the top!
